Virtualization solutions for Slackware -current 64

I need to run Windows XP on a virtual machine using my 64 bit Slackware -current box. Does anyone have a procedure for installing the non-free version of Virtualbox (USB support is a necessity), or failing that can anyone recommend another solution? The only virtualization software I've ever run has been Virtualbox.
